The move came after the reported establishment of a political office and a cooperative by and MILF group in the village of Cawit, west of Zamboanga City.

Mayor Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, who chairs the CPOC, likewise tasked Carbon and the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) regional office to study the matter, considering that it was a clear violation of the protocol on the peace negotiations.
